Player Name: Matt
YIM Handle: matt.olfson@rocketmail.com

Character Name: Mane
Alias: 357
Rank: Private
Race: Free-born Battle Cat (African Lion)
O.C.C.: Headhunter Techno-Warrior (WB 20, pg 110)
Alignment: Unprincipled
XP Level: 9
XP Points: 71,246 XP (05FEB2018 - MaA)
Next Level @ XP: 96,401 (for lv. 10)
Sentiments/Non-Humans: Conditional tolerance. D-bees do not belong here, but it is not their fault. Treats them reasonably well, distrusts those he doesn't know, but may consider a D-bee he knows and likes as a trusted friend. Monsters and demons are usually "kill on sight" unless the situation dictates caution or restraint.
Sentiments/Coalition: Respectful but wary. Knows the CS is capable of greatness but is also aware of their dark side. Has heard a great many things about the Coalition, and generally has favorable leanings about the CS, but overall is still in the process of deciding which paradigm he will ultimately adopt.
Disposition: Tough Guy - Cocky and self-reliant. Tends to be the strong silent type. Rarely brags about his accomplishments or abilities, but is also slightly arrogant in that he knows he's the best in the room... he just doesn't feel compelled to rub it in other people's faces (too often). Being a bit of the curious type, he loves to learn new things and study what he can, even occasionally things outside his understanding. When it comes to being sociable, he prefers the company of ladies, be they Humans, d-bees, or mutants, usually with the objective of having his way; however, he is professional enough not to play games with those he considers his colleagues in work.
Insanity: Fascination with death in all its forms. The character examines and studies ways one can die and kill, as well as implements of death, how the human (and non-human) body reacts/responds to the threat of death/fear, tolerance to pain, survival responses, and even the philosophical concepts of death, the soul, life after death and so on. It is interesting to note that the character is not afraid of death and is not morbid about it. He is simply fascinated by it. Others may find him to be disturbingly callous and ghoulish. He will be fascinated by Juicers, and may also find the undead/vampires of interest (or as abominations who defy the natural order of life). --- Presently in Remission

Description: Mane is a pale haired (not truly white, but often mistaken as such) mutant lion with a hulking, muscular frame. While his short-fur coat masks numerous scars of his youth and upbringing, the scarring on his left eye is obvious to all but the blind. Within that scarred eye is a mechanical cybernetic replacement telling of past battles. True to his name, his mane is intentionally grown out and styled with a few braids and golden beads, but is mostly free-flowing. As of late he has put on a few pounds, resulting in a slight paunch to his belly and a fuller frame.

  • Half when multiple sources are scattered throughout sensing range.
  • Roll once every 400 feet to see if hunter is still on the trail. A failed roll means the scent is lost.
  • Cannot recognize psychic scents like a dog boy can.

  • Close proximity to ley lines and nexus points disrupt the psychic senses.

3) Excellent vision and passive night sight: All felines have excellent, 20/20 color vision with a field of vision of 220 degrees. In addition, their eyes work like passive light amplification optic systems that enable them to see in the dark - cats can see in darkness 6-7 times better than humans. However, just like a starlight scope or an owl, the cats must have some degree of ambient light (from the moon, stars, the dim reflection of night clouds) in order to see. In total darkness, they are as blind as a human, except they can use their sense of smell, keen hearing and long, sensitive whiskers (like antennae) to negotiate in the darkness better than humans (2-3 times better; penalties for blindness are -4 to strike, parry and dodge). A cat's vision is its most important sense.

4) Excellent sense of hearing: The mutant feline can hear into a higher range of sound and can register sounds of 25,000 vibrations per second compared to 20,000 in humans, though not as high as 35,000 in dogs. However, they have even greater control over their ears than dogs. Like external sound receivers, they can prick and swivel to focus in on the sound of a noise. Cats have approximately 30 ear muscles.
  • Has the ability to discriminate between two sounds separated by an angle of five degrees with an accuracy level of 75%.
  • A feline can hear sounds up to two octaves higher than the highest note humans can hear, a half octave higher than a dog.
  • Judge Distance & Precise Location of Source: 80%+2% per level of experience. Reduce the level of accuracy -10% for every 50 yards/meters (roughly 150 ft/45.7 m) between the feline and the sound source/prey.
  • Recognize & Identify Prey by Sounds: 72%+2% per level of experience; -20% when dealing with artificial sounds (bots, 'Borgs, the whine of a jet pack, the rumble of a hovercycle, etc.). This ability enables the mutant cat to identity the animal (or machine) making the noise (rabbit, raccoon, snake, cat, buffalo, dog, Dog Boy, Simvan, human, etc., or in the case of a machine, an NG-Turbo, CS Rocket bike, SAMAS or two or five, Skelebot, etc.). Reduce the level of accuracy by -10% for every 50 yards/meters (roughly 150 ft/45.7 m) distance between the feline and the sound source/prey.

5) Fair to good sense of smell: Most cats (but not all) have an olfactory ability about twice as good as a human's, but nothing compared to a canine's. A tiger relies primarily on its vision and hearing, so its sense of smell is on par with a human's.

6) Natural climbers: All cats can climb at the base skill of 60%/40% (plus 5% bonuses for African Lions); +10% AT bonus.

7) Natural Swimmers: All cats are fair swimmers with a base skill of 50% (plus 10% bonus for African Lions).

8.) Sprinters: The mutant cat can run at double his normal speed for 1D4 minutes before dropping back to normal speed.

9) Sensitivity to Ley Line energy: Ley lines and nexus points obliterate the mutant cat's psychic and supernatural sensing abilities and gives it a headache. They try to avoid these places. This means the character cannot use his psychic sensing abilities to locate magic or supernatural prey, or to sense their presence when on a ley line or near a nexus. However, the creature's normal physical senses, especially sight, are not affected and the other psychic abilities are enhanced (as usual). Most mutant cats are leery around places of magic and often show uncharacteristic signs of being nervous and on edge. Cats are not vulnerable to ley line storms like canines.

10) Lion's Roar: A lion's roar can be heard up to one mile (1.6 km) away.

11) Mutations Gone Wrong: >>> Suffers from Insanity >>> Psychosis >>> Fascination with death in all its forms. (See Insanity above).

OCC Special Abilities
1) Recognize Weapon Quality: The ability to accurately determine a weapon's durability, reliability, and quality by physically examining it. This includes knowing which manufacturers are reputed to make the best weapons, the ability to recognize damage or signs of misuse, modifications/customization or wear and tear, whether the weapon can be made as good as new with a little repair work and/or cleaning, hether it is a cheap "knock-off' (copy/imitation), and so on. The character can also recognize if the weapon is stolen (serial numbers filed away, etc.), new, old, and if it has any other special features or properties, as well as know what the fair price should be.
Base Skill: 40% (+5%)
  • Reduce the skill ability by half if the item is not actually handled; seen but not touched/examined.

2) Headhunter's Find Contraband: These able soldiers will have a strong idea where to find and how to locate smugglers, weapon dealers, and Body-Chop-Shops. Likewise, they are skilled at recognizing and contacting such illegal operators. This makes the skill a variant of the standard Find Contraband, Weapons & Cybernetics skill, only it is much more narrowly focused on technological contraband, particularly bionics and weapons, to the exclusion of all else (drugs, magic, etc.). This means the Headhunter will have a good idea where to go to find arms dealers, weapons or bionics smugglers, body chop-shops, Cyber-Snatchers, and underground Cyber-Docs, as well as how to spot and approach them. The character is also familiar with their practices, hang-outs, gang or criminal ties, general practices, code of conduct, fees, pricing and modes of operation. Likewise, he has a good idea of what Black Market weapons and cybernetics should cost and what these people pay for contraband items (typically only 20% of the retail market price). Furthermore, he knows the penalties for being caught with an illegal weapon, implant or bionics (not that Headhunters care). In all CS cities and most other societies, M.D. weapons, concealed weapons and sidearms are forbidden inside large population centers.
Base Skill: 53% (+3%)
  • This skill should be considered separate and apart from Streetwise and the more broad Contraband skill. It is available only to Headhunters and a few select others.
  • This skill cannot be used to identify or locate drug dealers, assassins, smugglers of other items (such as books or magic), practitioners of magic, guilds, sects or other secret societies or operations — only those dealing in the making, selling and smuggling of weapons, armor, vehicles, cybernetics, bionics and advanced technologies.

3) Contacts: The character starts with none, other than a few rumors regarding possible contacts. With time, the Headhunter is likely to develop a network of "contacts," particularly with arms dealers, weapon smugglers, Operators/Mechanics, Cyber-Docs and the operators of Body-Chop-Shops and similar criminal operations. If he is a regular client, the particular "dealer" is likely to offer to sell him additional information and other goods. Where a good relationship is established, the contact is likely to offer the character a 10%-20% discount and first right of refusal to rare, experimental and powerful (stolen) items. This may also apply to various other criminal or underground groups, thieves, safe-houses, and scoundrels (forger, safecracker, assassin, etc.).
  • G.M.s, use your discretion. Role-playing should be required.

Bionics & Cybernetics
Reinforced MDC Metal Skeleton
    Subject's bones have been replaced with a humanoid skeleton made of MDC Ceramics and other non-metallic materials. Bones are considered unbreakable by normal means.
Scrambled CS Radio Receiver & Transmitter
  • 3 mile range; transmits standard CS radio encryption. The encryption can be updated via a hand computer and the included headjack.
  • Can tell the time and date down to the 100th of a second.
  • Automatically diminishes potentially damaging sounds with filters and/or earplugs. Sounds are muffled to protect the character from deafening or disorienting levels of sound.
  • Will allow information to be transmitted to the cybernetic eye.

Advanced Training: Close Quarters Battle
(Note: Paid for with Lv. 9 OCC & Related skills and one OCC & one Related skill acquired through EPs)
  • Friend or Foe Perception Rolls (special AT ability; success on a 90% perception roll [55% base + 25% IFF bonus + 10% Natural bonus]): Dynamic entry and snap decision making is necessary in close quarters combat. Whether it is used to clear a room, swarm a vehicle or rescue hostages, the assault is a rapid and aggressive attack using overwhelming force, the element of surprise and probably multiple entry points. And it requires making lethal force split-second decisions every step of the way. +5 (+25% under House Rules) to Perception Rolls to differentiate between friend and foe at a glance, within line of sight. This is the practiced ability to make a snap judgement in identifying the enemy vs teammates, hostages, civilians and other noncombatants no matter how intermingled the enemy may be among them. Commando-style raids are designed to take down all hostiles fast. Starting with the most immediate enemy threat followed by the greatest potential danger and then all the other bad guys in the room. This is a snap judgement that take considerable training and awareness of one's surroundings. Lethal force is used, so unless enemy targets drop their guns and fall to their knees or bellies, hands empty and arms outstretched, they are targeted for termination ! No questions asked.
  • I.D. Enemy in Disguise: Metamorphed or Shape-Changed (special AT ability): CQC specialists can, like the Demon Hunter,detect enemies and monsters in disguise or shape-changed by their behavior and reactions (see CS Demon Hunter AT for details). Unlike the Demon Hunter, however, the CQC specialist makes this determination via Friend or Foe Perception Roll BUT with the reduced bonus of only +2. Looking for visual cues that suggest the individual is not what he appears to be.
  • Advanced Hand to Hand: Upgradle for Established Characters; level for level change to Hand to Hand Commando from Jujitsu.
  • Bonus Skills (listed under Related Skills below):
    • Climbing/Rappelling (+I0%; bonus to natural climbing skill)

Equipment

KLS-RG-15X Manpack Electromagnetic Rail Gun (Patron Item)
Image
The brain child of the KLS corporation, this rail gun design is a miniaturized version of the RG-14 Electromagnetic Mass Driver. It's flexibility, efficiency, and relatively light weight make it the most potent man-portable, anti-armor & anti-demon weapon system ever produced. The only drawback is the delay in discharge as the capacitors spool up to release the hypersonic sabot payload. Several cases of these rifles have been released for field testing.
• Range: 5,000'
• Damage:
• • vs M.D. Organic Target: 1D12x10 M.D. + target cannot bio-regenerate (same rules as for DU rounds)
• • vs M.D. Inorganic Target: 1D12x10 M.D. + 1 roll on Optional Robot Combat Damage Tables (GMs, consult p.353-354, R:UE)
• • vs S.D.C. Organic Target: 1D8x10 + 1d8 direct to H.P. + target is bleeding from that wound
• • vs S.D.C. Inorganic Target: 1D12x10 + 1 roll on Optional Robot Combat Damage Tables (GMs, consult p.353-354, R:UE); automatically defeats all armor ratings
• Penetration Value: 10 (Goes through up to 12" of heavy steel plate)
• Rate of Fire: Single shots only; each shot requires 2 APM
• Payload: Helical magazine containing 12 APDS rounds (Armor-Piercing Discarding Sabots)
Features:
• • Laser Targeting
• Modifiers: +1 to Strike at ranges over 500', Two-handed weapon
• Weight: 20 lbs.
Helical magazines must be custom made by highly skilled weapons shops and have a base cost of 1000 credits each.
APDS rounds must be custom made by highly skilled weapons shops and have a base cost of 250 credits each.

Bandit 5050 "Papa Bear" Enhanced BigBore Medium Rail Gun
• Range: 2,000'
• Damage: 2D4 M.D. per single shell, 4D4 M.D. per short burst of three shells or 5D6 M.D. for a long burst of six shells; damage is in addition to Knockdown Effect (see below)
• Rate of Fire: Each shot or burst counts as one melee attack, but the bursts are less controlled and less accurate (so all shells fired do not hit the intended target).
• Payload: Cyborg ammo drum holds 240 rounds; an E-Clip can fire 240 bursts (rounds instead of bursts? [probable typo]) before needing to be replaced.
    Ammo Count: 0/240

A failed roll means the victim is knocked off of his feet and flung 8- 10 feet (2.4 to 3 m) before hitting the ground! The victim loses initiative, is momentarily dazed (reduce all combat bonuses by half for one melee round per each blast endured), and loses one melee attack/action!

Re: Private Mane

Postby Mane » Tue Jul 24, 2018 12:42 pm

Backstory:

The story of Mane begins a generation earlier with his parents, Kimba and Rosetta. Kimba was a proud CS Battle Cat, ever loyal to his duties and was assigned to a seek & destroy unit based out of Lone Star City. Rosetta had already seen her fair share of action in the field and was allowed to serve in a less active capacity as an assistant in the psi-hounds’ nursery. It was strange fate that the two mutant lions’ paths even crossed at all one late night in a dog boy-friendly bar. But meet they did. Some would call it love at first sight, while Kimba suspected it was just him who was stricken given how hard he had to pursue Rosetta from then on. This, however, was not the case as Rosetta also fell in love that night, but knowing their relationship was forbidden by Coalition mutant protocols, she was much more guarded and cautious. Over the following year, every time Kimba would come back from a mission in the Pecos Badlands, he would stalk Rosetta and pester her till she agreed to see him in secret. Though the two could not see each other much, the forbidden relationship they slowly built was passionate one that burned hotter than the sun.

One October day Kimba returned from a hunt, and as usual managed to arrange a secret meeting with his beloved. Rosetta sent word to meet at their usual place. When Kimba arrived, he was greeted by a quartet of Kill Hounds and a very irate human sergeant. Kimba was arrested on the spot for violating Section 24 of the mutant criminal justice code: unauthorized copulation. Kimba was stripped of many of his privileges and a citation was placed in his record, ruining his chances for the promotion he was hoping for. After being released from custody and facing hard labor duties for the next month, one of Rosetta’s friends delivered a message to him, asking him to meet her one last time. Kimba wasted no time and raced to back alley where Rosetta was waiting. This time there was no trap set for him, but there was a surprise waiting just the same. Rosetta told him she was pregnant with his child, and because they were caught, there was no way to have it in secret. She was to report to Lab 163 immediately to have the pregnancy terminated. Confronted with not only the end of his relationship with the woman he loved, but also the death of his unborn child, Kimba could not bear the heavy yolk of Coalition oppression any longer. Taking Rosetta’s hand, they fled the city and escaped into the Pecos Badlands where he previously made as many friends as he had enemies. Though things would be hard at first, there was the promise of a better tomorrow to be had out in the desolate badlands.

In a month’s time, Kimba and Rosetta finally managed to shake the team of dogs who were hunting them. Though not the most popular being in the Pecos Badlands, Kimba managed to make it to a family of Cactus People he managed to save from raiders (not to mention his own CS buddies) and took refuge with them. While there, he worked their land busting dirt for their crops in the day, while making contacts for work more befitting his skill-set in the nearby town at night. By February 14, not only did Kimba find work with a team of local bounty hunters, but his son was born unto the world. Delivered by the thorny hands of a Cactus Person midwife, the two renegade Battle Cats named their free-born son Mane in deference to the freedom of the free-flowing mane of hair a proper lion should always have. “Live free or die.” Kimba took to saying form that day forward, and that is exactly what they did.

Mane was raised on a small ranch by the Rio Grande, learning his future trade from his ex-soldier parents and the ruffians they kept company with. While Kimba put his tracking skills to work collecting local bounties (ranging from local criminal scum to vampires), Rosetta split her time between raising her son and acting as an unofficial sheriff, keeping the peace and settling disputes in the local community. Occasionally the two would take a job with a mercenary troupe as a team, bring Mane alone with them for the educational experience. Though it was a violent life, Mane seemed to not mind whenever he was exposed to the ugly side of the business. His mother suspected there was something not entirely right with her boy. The troupe’s leader, Captain Zedediah Enfield, developed a rapport with the two warriors and lent a hand in the education of little Mane. Sometimes Enfield would sit the cub down to teach him the simple fundamentals of reading, math and his personal philosophy on honor, ethics, and living by a code. Other times the Captain would have one of his men instruct the cub in advanced fighting styles and how the handle a variety of weapons. A few times, they caught Mane with the camp cook, helping the cook butcher livestock for that night's dinner with the young cub taking special interest in killing process and studying the various methods the animals died and could be killed in the process. As far as Kimba and Rosetta were concerned, Enfield was a Godsend and quickly came to be regarded as Mane’s uncle. In time, as the cub matured into a young adult lion, Mane’s education became increasingly more hands-on as he learned the soldier-for-hire trade inside and out. For his fifth birthday, he was allowed to take his first kill in combat; a Simvan cattle rustler with an overinflated opinion of what he was entitled to in this world. By Mane’s sixth birthday, he had already fought scores of others and killed a dozen beings, including two wild vampires.

One particularly memorable mission involved the troupe ambushing a supply line. They were hired to put an end to a pirate smuggling route into Old Bones said to have strong ties to the Federation of Magic (allegedly). While Mane still wasn't allowed operate solo, he and the two merc's with him were tasked with the job of covering the troupe's rear as the majority of them took care of business. But as the rest were occupied, springing their ambush, a pair of pirates were spotted making their escape. Mane and the two merc' soldiers went in hot pursuit, and thought they were making headway. That is until the two pirates used their ambition against them and lured them into an impromptu ambush of the pirates' own. The fighting was fierce from the start. The merc' soldier to Mane's right was the first to go as they stepped into the trap, his head being blown off by a well-placed ballistic grenade. Pressing forward, Mane found himself in single combat with a human of incredible speed! With his partner engaged with the other pirate, Mane was effectively all by himself for the very first time in his life. The lightning-fast pirate moved in quickly, blasting away with a pistol and closing in to do damage with a vibro-saber. Mane's counter moves were coming up short and the pirates was making short work of him. It wasn't till Mane caught a lucky break in the fight, when the pirate's pistol ran dry and he had to come in close to finish the job, screaming profanities in French all the way. Using the close in moves pounded into his head for years, Mane managed to press his advantage of strength and training. The French-speaking pirate did his best, evading most of Mane's attacks with one impossible dodge after the next, but all it took was one slip for Mane to sink his claws into the man's throat. As the pirate's blood sprayed all over Mane, his old curiosities about death resurfaced. Upon examination of his dying victim, the young lion discovered a concealed network of IV tubing and a bio-comp system; his Old Bones dancing partner was a juicer! That Mane found to be even more fascinating; a man who embraced death to be the ultimate warrior, now owning up to that fate. As the juicer pirate finally died, Mane wanted to always remember this special death, so he took the fallen pirate's pistol as his own (a Q1-02 "Stopper" Ion Pistol). Not so much as a trophy, but more of a memento.

While Mane’s education and upbringing left him little time for little else, he did have some free time now and then. That time was mainly filled with discovering his main hobby: women. Growing up in a community where he and his parents were the only ones of their kind, Mane developed a wide sense of acceptability of others regarding race and species in this regard. In fact with his distinct features and bushy mane of hair, he turned out to be quite the ladies’ man with all the young girls in town… girls of all sorts. His relationships rarely lasted though; though good at heart, many found his fascination with death off-putting and creepy. Still, there were some who looked past his quirks. Of the many loves he had in his youth, the one that he always remembered the most fondly was a N’mbry Gorilla Man girl named Misty and the cute way she would get mad every time her disapproving parents would split them up. And then there was Gina, an ordinary human who loved to play with his mane. That was the summer he had corn-rows and pig-tails every which way all over his head. Overall, Mane developed a broad appetite in the development of “his type” of female companionship, but always preferred the thrill of the hunt and the chase of courtship than any of the relationships he developed. Maybe it was the cat in him… maybe he was just a tramp. Either way, Mane developed a bit of a reputation for being the Don Juan DeMarco of the Rio Grande.

In time Mane became his own man and felt ready to strike out on his own. Armed with the skills passed down to him by dozens of expert teachers, Kimba and Rosetta arranged for him to join a Captain Enfield’s mercenary troupe full-time while they worked jobs elsewhere. By that time, Mane was a capable warrior, wiser in the ways of battle, calm under fire, but still with much to learn. He even managed to find a new outlet for his "peculiarities" as he learned to apply himself artistically through taxidermy (though his subjects were still sometimes gruesome and disturbing). Enfield took Mane under his wing and helped forge the mutant lion into a solid mercenary through the school of hard knocks. Mane often sustained cuts and bruises and broken bones in the course of his continuing on-the-job training, but he never once complained. Instead the big cat continued to get bigger and stronger. While Rosetta showed concern over how rough it looked when Mane would occasionally visit home, he always reassured his mother it was nothing he couldn’t handle. His assurances sometimes fell on deaf ears, especially the time he came home to convalesce with two broken legs, but he always brought home a thoughtful gift (commonly a stuffed animal or d-bee he made himself).

As Mane became more capable, the Captain felt increasingly comfortable with entrusting him with tougher responsibilities. This led to the time when Mane was given an assignment where he came across a bothersome Flooper who managed to infiltrate one of the troupe’s client camps. The Flooper was mainly a con-man and a petty thief, but managed to get into serious enough trouble for the client to ask for assistance. Mane and two others were given the task of running the bothersome clown off, but when confronted, the Flooper used his powers of teleportation to vanish and then suddenly appear behind them, slashing one of the other’s throat out with a vibro-razor. The scuffle instantly went from mundane to lethal in a heartbeat. Main and his living partner managed to finally get the upper hand on the Flooper, but not before the d-bee slashed out Mane’s left eye and broke a leg in four places. The Flooper's head was stuffed and mounted on a nice cherry-stained backboard, complete with the deactivated vibro-razor.

After his wounds were stabilized, the Captain sent Mane to see a Cyber-Doc on contract to the troupe to see to the group’s cyber/medical needs. There Mane was given a number of options for his mechanical replacement. Being enamored with the wide variety of eyes to choose from, he had a hard time picking just one. He ended up choosing a modular eye socket that could accept any number of adapted cybernetic eyes, and started his collection of eyes with a well-rounded multi-optic model. After the surgery, Mane talked to the doctor about other options he could do with his body. While pointing to his broken leg, it didn’t take much effort on the doctor’s part to sell the mutant cat on the idea of “better living through augmentation”. While Mane didn’t want to sacrifice his natural strength, he and the doctor discussed a number of possibilities at length. Being tired of broken bones and the fear of eventually having one of his limbs cut off in battle, Mane opted to start his path of elective procedures with a big one: MDC reinforced metal bones. The procedure was as expensive as it was painful, but it was oh so worth it! On his very next mission out, the steel bones came to be very useful indeed, stopping a Brodkil from chopping off a leg at the shin. From then on Mane was hooked on the cyber-life and started planning for one procedure and cyber-goodie after the next. It didn’t take long before the Captain had to cut him off from the doctor. Mainly because though Mane paid part of the bills (a moderate co-pay), the procedures were getting too costly for the mercenary troupe.

In his time with Captain Enfield and the mercenaries, Mane obtained a sense of belonging with the troupe. They accepted him for who he was, and he regarded them as part of his family/pride. He started to get a sense of what it must have been like for his father and mother before they ran away from the CS. But in time, those feelings started to take a turn towards the bitter. If this was what it was like to be part of a troupe of a few dozen, Mane could scarcely imagine what it must have been like to be part of an entire army. And that was when it struck him; in a sense, Mane was denied his birthright as soldier in the Coalition States Army. While he was aware he mostly likely would have been terminated as a fetus, the sense of denial of being part of something grand stayed with him. He talked it over with Enfield, and the man was surprisingly understanding. So much that Enfield revealed a secret to the free-born mutant; Captain Zedediah Enfield was not his real name! It was actually Lt Colonel Jon McMorris, and he was in fact a covert agent of the CS all along, along with about a quarter of the troupe’s members. All of the mercenary troupe’s missions served the Coalition in once capacity or another, whether its members knew it or not. What was more was McMorris extended Mane an offer; repatriation with no repercussions, and the option to work in another similar team as the mercenary troupe they were presently in. Sensing it was his destiny to reclaim his heritage, Mane jumped at the opportunity on the condition that his parents were to be taken off the list of fugitive CS mutants. To that condition McMorris said he’d see what he could do.

Mane was escorted to Lone Star City by McMorris and the small portion of the mercenary troupe who turned out to be covert Coalition Special Forces. They were expected as McMorris cleared things ahead over a secured channel on the radio. Though the experience was exciting and new, Mane found his “feral reclamation orientation” classes somewhat confusing. The classes were geared towards the minds of feral dog boys more than him, playing up to their pack mentality. And while he and his African Lion kin were more sociable than other mutant cats, the collectiveism of it all seemed almost cult-like. Eventually as he progressed to the one-on-one individual orientation with a dedicated human councilor (parole officer of sorts really), he discovered that was just the kind of culture the dogs responded best to, and wasn’t fully expected of him; not with his experience and background. His councilor was well-versed on the behaviorisms of Battle Cats and treated Mane accordingly to help bring him into the fold. In time Mane was fully acclimated to the Coalition and sent out on a few missions to help cement his cohesion to the CS. For Mane it was everything he expected, bonding well with his unit, and sensing the bond between his unit and other units as well. It was like a family of families… a pride of prides… a nation.

Having done well for himself and proving his newfound loyalty to the Coalition states, Mane was assigned to unit operating in MercTown. …

Comments and Notes:
S-Spec Mane 7665 possesses superhuman strength. According to records, so did his sire. Subject's psychological profile suggests a fascination with death. Not a deathwish, but rather a fascination with dealing death. Useful, if channeled correctly. Careful watch should be maintained so as to avoid it escalating further.
Lt. Colonel Karen Sharpe, MARO-Psychologist
S-Spec Mane is among the most insubordinate and unruly mutant cats I have ever had the displeasure of working with. It is my view that the creature should have been put down, not reclaimed for service in the Coalition. His overall attitude is one of superiority. He does not work well in a squad of mutant animals or with just humans. Recommend he be put down.
